One of my favourite hobbies is spotting regressive liberal/feminist propaganda in local print media.
This Halloween, the hippest millennial topic since rape culture, bubbling up from Tumblr and gender studies courses is “Cultural Appropriation.”
Cultural appropriation is the adoption or use of elements of one culture by members of another culture. Cultural appropriation is seen by some as controversial, notably when elements of a minority culture are used by members of the cultural majority; this is seen as wrongfully oppressing the minority culture or stripping it of its group identity and intellectual property rights.
Have you ever dressed as a Mariachi, or a Pocahontas for Halloween? How about ninja or geisha? Have you ever worn dreadlocks?
Then according to the liberal media establishment, you are guilty of cultural appropriation.
You are offensive, insensitive and racist.
This may seem trivial and silly, because it is, and I wouldn’t give two shit’s about it unless it kept popping up in conversation offline. And why would something so stupid pop up? Because these narratives are being pushed by the mainstream press.
Take a gander at the article above by Sabrina Maddeaux of Vancouver’s “24,” a free daily propaganda rag.
It starts off with a stern finger wag, telling all of us racist idiots to behave this Halloween, shaming us to not wear Indian Headdresses, Hitler Costumes (cmon, Hitler costumes are pretty funny), geishas, or basically anything that’s not on a pre-approved list of PC costumes.
Who holds this holy list, and how long it is, I’m not sure. Maybe it’s locked up in a gender studies prof’s desk somewhere.
But here’s the truth: Once you start imposing limits on expression, it doesn’t stop.
It spreads like cancer. It spreads to policing language, expression, speech, and even thought.
The ridiculous piece ends with what is basically a warning—that should you break the rules of PC, you’ll end up jobless, or kicked out of school and shamed on social media by indoctrinated regressive, liberal idiots.
I’m not sure if she was given this story by an editor, or she’s a recent liberal arts grad, but the whole premise is very much fascism in the guise of empathy.
It’s called virtue signalling:
Look, we’re PC, you should be PC too, or else.
Being in the business of telling the truth about attraction, sex, dating, and human psychology, I have a bone to pick with the media establishment. I’ve been, and have seen my peers on the receiving end of their bias. They are liars, and manipulators who think that by virtue signalling, they are spreading love and tolerance, when in reality they are creating strife, misery and even violence with these toxic ideas.
Like Lauren Southern says, what they call Cultural Appropriation, we call Cultural Appreciation.
It’s up to you to decide what offends you, and what doesn’t. Not the media. Not a bunch of whiny, privileged University students.
It’s not your job to speak for asians, or blacks, or native americans. Nobody asked us to do this. Nobody was offended by a ninja or geisha outfit until the media establishment told us to be.
The point of propaganda, is for nobody to realize it is propaganda.
This woman has a right to her opinion, and a right to publish it. This doesn’t mean she is not free from ridicule.
I mean, what would us logical, normal, easy going, rational people have to laugh at if it wasn’t for liberals and their oppressive religion of tolerance? I used to call myself a liberal, and now I’m ashamed of them, and their behaviour. They are now the regressive left.
Mock these ideas. Make little acts of rebellion—and try to be funny about it. Don’t be cruel or mean. But the next time someone asks you to check your privilege, or wear something less offensive, just say, “Thanks Mom.” And move on. Or “That’s a little racist, isn’t it?” And move on. Never be violent. Just be witty or dismissive. They may control the cultural narrative, but you control your thoughts and actions.
Don’t let these dim fuckers ruin your Halloween.
I mean, how can you not feel cool wearing a beautiful headdress? They’re awesome. And what better time than Halloween to be a geisha, a ninja, or Barack Obama?
Here’s the truth: the more you try to censor people, to segregate by focusing on gender and race, the more racism and sexism you create.
Feminists, liberals and sjw’s don’t seem to understand that what they are rallying for, is fascism.
The media is not addressing intolerance, it’s creating it.
When you’re being bullied by some moron because he read an article saying your cowboy outfit represents the genocide of American Indians, blame the media.
When you are being slut shamed and called racist at a party because you dressed in an anime girl outfit, you know who told them to bully you.
This is why the toxic ideas are spreading:
- Kids go to University
- They enroll in classes like gender studies
- They are lied to, brainwashed, and turned into professional victims
- They are unleashed into society, where they find other professional victims to align with
- They get jobs in the media, and spout the nonsense to the masses via Social Media and mainstream news
The media creates thought, and enforces it with mob rule via social media shaming campaigns.
There are some media outlets that attempt to tell the truth, and these are mostly sidestream news sources.
The good news is, people aren’t buying it. Both men and women are starting to speak up against the wave of PC that has taken hold of western culture.
If you value your freedom, make fun of these articles, these authors, and their well meaning but completely misguided sense of social justice. Mock them and their petty, whiny grievances. Don’t get yourself fired or doxxed. But make tiny acts of rebellion.
I have my Halloween costume, and my preferred pronoun is “Chief.”
